Objective To assess the short-term efficacy of Semont maneuver for unilateral posterior semicircular canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (PC-BPPV). Methods The short-term efficacy of Semont maneuver was compared with a sham procedure in 128 patients with PC-BPPV by using a double-blinded prospective randomized controlled trial in the setting of a neurologic outpatient clinic in China. Analysis was based on the symptomatic status and the Dix-Hallpike maneuver on the fourth day. At this… Expand
Physical Therapy for Posterior and Horizontal Canal Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: Long-term Effect and Recurrence: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Valuable studies show the beneficial effects of the maneuvers for the treatment of BPPV and their long-term effectiveness, which strengthens the conclusion that this treatment is effective in resolving symptoms and decreasing recurrences. Expand
Treatment Maneuvers for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo in the Very Old
TLDR
Patients with posterior canal BPPV aged 85 years or older were screened for cases with adequate documentation of (a) presenting symptoms, (b) positional nystagmus elicited by the side-lying or the Semont or Epley maneuver, and (c) result of the Dix–Hallpike maneuver. Expand
In Adult Patients With PC-BPPV, Is the Semont Maneuver Effective in Reducing Symptoms of Vertigo?
TLDR
The results of these three randomized controlled trials suggest that the Semont Maneuver is a safe, easily performed, and effective treatment modality for patients with PCBPPV. Expand
Effects of Semont maneuver on benign paroxysmal positional vertigo: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Overall, SM had similar outcomes with Epley maneuver and Brandt-Daroff exercise (BDE) in terms of recovery rate, recurrence rate, and side-effects, and is as effective as EM and BDE for BPPV treatment. Expand
A Multicenter Randomized Double-Blind Study: Comparison of the Epley, Semont, and Sham Maneuvers for the Treatment of Posterior Canal Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
TLDR
The Epley maneuver was significantly more effective per maneuver than Semont or sham maneuvers for the short-term treatment of posterior canal BPPV and showed persistent resolution rates of positional vertigo and nystagmus without a fatigue phenomenon. Expand
Management of 210 patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo: AMC protocol and outcomes
TLDR
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) could be treated with specific maneuvers for the involved canals and management on a daily basis gave earlier relief than weekly treatment, especially in apogeotropic BPPV. Expand
Repositioning Maneuvers for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
TLDR
There is good evidence to support treatment of posterior canal BPPV with Epley or Semont maneuvers and horizontal canal B PPV with Gufoni maneuvers or BBQ roll; and weaker evidence for head hanging maneuvers in the least common anterior canal variant. Expand
Diagnosis and Treatment of Anterior-Canal Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The present analysis demonstrated that AC-BPPV comprises about 3% of all BPPV cases and can be treated safely using the Epley, Yacovino, and other maneuvers with rates of symptom resolution lying in the range of that reported for the other, more frequent canal variants. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the Brandt-Daroff maneuver is a form of habituation training rather than a liberatory maneuver and will not be affected provided that the waiting time is sufficiently long. Expand
Vertigo returning to the sitting position after the Semont manoeuvre. Is it a prognostic symptom?
TLDR
In case of sudden vertigo returning to the final sitting position of the SM, the failure rate of the liberatory manoeuvre was higher, even though not statistically significant: therefore, it can be considered as a negative prognostic factor of posterior BPPV after SM. Expand

Efficacy of the Semont maneuver in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
TLDR
The Semont maneuver demonstrated a 90.3% cure rate after a maximum of 4 sessions, and patients consulting late (>6 months after the beginning of symptoms) or having traumatic BPPV had lower recovery rates than patients without these factors. Expand
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo: a comparative prospective study on the efficacy of Semont's maneuver and no treatment strategy.
TLDR
BPPV is easy to solve with a successful repositioning maneuver, and it is of interest for every general practitioner to be able to promptly recognize this frequent balance disorder and to be ability to treat a patient affected by BPPV with a safe repositioned maneuver. Expand

TLDR
The CRP is effective treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and this procedure can be performed by general internists on outpatients with this disorder. Expand

TLDR
The results support two possible mechanisms of BPPV: displaced otoconia and a neural mechanism affecting interpretation of semicircular canal signals. Expand

TLDR
This study establishes the efficacy of PRM in short- and long-term management of BPPV; the procedure is easy and simple. Expand
Epley's maneuver in the same session in benign positional paroxysmal vertigo.
TLDR
Repeated Epley's maneuvers in less sessions rendered more positional nystagmus-free patients when compared to those submitted to more sessions of single maneuvers, and a significant association between number of sessions and group was observed. Expand

TLDR
The Epley maneuver is a simple bedside maneuver that appears to be more efficacious than a placebo maneuver in the treatment of acute BPV among ED patients. Expand
Immediate Efficacy of the Canalith Repositioning Procedure for the Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
TLDR
The immediate efficacy of CRP supported the canalolithiasis theory and the prognosis of patients with immediate unsuccessful results with CRP was somewhat worse than that for patients without CRP treatment. Expand

TLDR
The results of the Canalith Repositioning Procedure support an alternative theory that the densities that impart gravity-sensitivity to a semicircular canal in BPPV are free in the canal, rather than attached to the cupula. Expand
